Berkeley Unified School District is currently seeking individuals interested in representing the Board and Superintendent on a new Parent Advisory Committee (PAC), which is being established as a part of the new Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).
Board and Superintendent representatives to the Parent Advisory Committee will be selected through an application process, and appointed by the Board and Superintendent using the criteria listed below. (Board and Superintendent representatives will serve together with the school site representatives already selected by school principals.)
Each district-wide Parent Advisory Committee representative appointed shall meet each of the following criteria:
□ The ethnic, age group, and socioeconomic composition of the populations targeted by Local Control Funding Formula, as determined by the state: Free & Reduced Lunch Students, English Learners, and Foster Youth.
□ Applicants must be Berkeley residents
□ Familiarity with the Berkeley school community and the interests of representative school groups.
Membership shall be limited to residents or property taxpayers of the City of Berkeley, parents of BUSD students, who are not in a conflict of interest position, i.e., individuals, agents of employees or vendors who may stand to gain financially from a recommendation of the Committee.
Interested parties should complete and submit the application to the Office of the Superintendent no later than January 20, 2014.
